6:14am
6:15am
welcome back. we've been talking about waves all morning turning -- churning out at ocean city. first with a look at your traffic, here is sharon at traffic control. >> good morning everyone. just two problems and they don't seem to be two major ones. one -- we have a downed tree
6:16am
between glen arm road. that is blocking the road you can take mark lane to get around that. otherwise there's life look outside at ocean city another perspective. there's a look at 95 north. everything running smoothly. no issues on the west side at liberty road. remember wjz13 is always on. you can always log on. this traffic report is brought to you by toyota dealer. back over to you. back to hurricane earl taking a live look at ocean city where earl is beginning to bring some wind and rain and is still churning tup surf. marty is with us. first we go to meteorologist bernadette woods. >> getting bigger than yesterday. we saw from yesterday people were breaking their surfboards in those waves. this is why we want to show you what's going on. the latest right now, you can
6:17am
see the band actually making their way in. look at how lined up this, back here from the 95 corridor, there is a chance for few showers out of this, they really start to die out, marty has more because it's a different story than what's going to be going on down the beaches. you can notice just offshore these really bright colors that's where the heaviest of the rain is and that's where the gustiest of the winds are. when they start to come in, they pick up the wind that's when we're going to see tropical storm wind gusts. here is the latest, category 2 hurricane and winds are 104 miles per hour, moving off to north northeast at 18 miles per hour. this is already moving fast. lit continue to pick up speed as it races off to the northeast away from us. before that happens we're definitely going to feel the affects. here is the satellite radar, you can see the clouds spreading, the showers farther east and the heavier rain bands that make their way in are going to be on the eastern shore. one more thing i want to show
6:18am
you, as far as our watches and warnings grow, we have a tropical storm warning in effect for the beaches through today. winds are going to gust over 40 miles an hour with this storm making its way by our latitude. winds aren't that much of a factor yet. when you see this wind gusts right here up to 23 miles per hour, it's even higher on the beaches itself because there's nothing impeding that wind coming straight off the ocean. the wind gusts could be approaching 30 miles an hour in ocean city, but we're starting to see those increase. as far as the rest of the forecast goes, here is marty. >> certainly is interesting in the past 15 to 20 minutes the wind gusts has doubled. we're starting to see the affects of earl. right now, it's 72 degrees with calm winds and 84% humidity. humid more so than yesterday morning. barometer falling 30 inches down to 29.82.
6:19am
it's something we've been watching. let's go ahead and take a look if we can at the computer model and do note that wind shifts are getting ready to come into the air, cold front is going to help steer earl away from the area is indeed going to pass by the region over the next 24 hours, high pressure built in. we're looking for an absolutely delightful weekends. go ahead and take a look at the forecast, if we can. today we're going to a high of about 89 degrees, mostly cloudy, earlier than later more clouds than sun. tonight -- partly cloudy breezy, tomorrow, sunny, very refreshing actually given the stuffiness of the past few days with a high of 80 degrees. we continue to look labor holiday weekend. monday, 84. look what happens on tuesday and wednesday. this will be day 55 and day 56 of temperatures above 90 degrees on tuesday. we will break the record for

days above 90 degrees set back in 1988 here in baltimore, maryland. what a wild weather year it's been. take it away jes. >> complete coverage of hurricane earl continues now with adam may. good morning again, adam. >> reporter: now you know the sun has come up, we can get a better look at what's happening. first off you may have noticed i took off the rain jacket we haven't had another passing shower here in about 30 minutes. this storm is coming so fast you don't know what it's going to do. the waves are much stronger than they were yesterday. the waves were around 6 feet or so kind of guessing right now, but some of the big waves back here definitely look to be 10 feet or soft as we go back over here to the boardwalk, right at the end of the boardwalk you can see they've got some palm trees they're really starting to move here. no if i believe wind speed right now for the ocean along here, but i would say we're
6:21am
seeing gusts of 20, 25 miles an hour maximum. back here along the boardwalk, very very quiet. a few people have been out wandering around taking a look at the situation. people coming up asking me when is this storm going to start. we've got a little bit of rain coming and going. the waves certainly picking up. we're going to be out here keeping an eye on the situation all day long. back to you. >> thank you for that report. stay with wjz for the latest. get forecast updates and see live doppler radar any time log on to wjz.com. as we head to break, take a look farther up the coast at block island rhode island. block island rhode island. skies are still pretty clear ,,,

6:33am
we'll call earl. everything up to this point if you want to look in terms of performance has been the overture. i need to show you some winds offshore right now. they are really humming along. and the good news is the energy is offshore. the bad news is we're going to be seeing the surging waves throughout the course of not only this state but tomorrow maybe not diminishing until sunday we know the problems we encountered last weekend in ocean city and frankly from virginia beach up to long island sound because of rip currents. we have to keep in mind this is the second largest weekend of the year from folks going to coastal resort, once the storm clears out it's going to clear up. this is something that has to be watched through the weekends, something that is being started right now by earl. more coming up shortly, jes back to you. hurricane earl continues to make its way up the east coast hammering some areas. check out this scene.
